Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keepit with your own and in that time and when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane take one moment to embrace those gentale heroes you left behind......We Nam Brothers pause to backward glance and post this rememberance to you on of the gentle officers LT.

    So many days,so many nights we spent together. I went to Nam first then you made it... You came later,after I was gone, and died there. To your new wife, mother, father, and your little brother, I want them to know I think of them every day and wish the very best for them. I miss you Lt. Scottie Byrnes. God bless your family. May they love the freedom you died for. I now have a photo of you to show my family the hero who saved our lives.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
